The Simbird 1000C utilizes the XPLANE Cessna 172 aircraft module. The 172 has been evaluated and approved by the FAA. We are working with the FAA to add the Cessna 182 and 206 models in the near future. The Simbird includes a prop control, rudder trim, and cowl flaps control to allow for the later addition of the 182/206 – once approved by the FAA.
The Simbird 1000C BATD provides an effective training environment for both student and licensed pilots. This includes the practice of scenario based flight training events, instrument procedures, equipment failure and emergency procedures.
Students can learn and practice advanced instrumentation and avionics on a BATD cockpit modeled on the Cessna: the most popular and successful trainer of all time. Students can learn faster, retain skills longer and become better pilots.
Quickly realize direct savings by using the Simbird BATD in lieu of using actual aircraft. Results in reduced fuel usage, reducing unscheduled maintenance costs and extending hour-based inspection intervals. Aircraft “wear and tear” reduced by teaching correct aircraft procedures and techniques to students.
Operating a Simbird 1000C BATD provides the owner the opportunity to generate revenue every day of the week regardless of weather conditions. No longer be grounded due to weather! Offer your students significant savings on flight training while reducing wear and tear on your aircraft fleet.
